The beautiful and rugged North Coast of California is home to this private weather station and its webcams. The urban and the wild mingle here; giant redwood trees, the delicate rustling of eucalyptus leaves, the pounding of the surf, or gurgle of a secluded creek.

This station's microclimate weather data is acquired near the Rohnerville Airport in Fortuna. This weather station is operated and maintained as a public service by, and for over a decade has recorded, processed, and published the real-time data in coastal Humboldt County's rapidly changing weather conditions.

The Eel River Delta picture on the right is from one of our many webcams, a beautiful view of one of the most scenic spots in Fortuna. See it larger! The view of the Pacific Ocean is awesome from our cam at the Inn of the Lost Coast in Shelter Cove.

  • Soil Temperature: 47°F (8°C) at a depth of 8 inches+

    This month's highest soil temperature was 48°F on 01/08, and its lowest was 42°F on 01/06.
    For the year, the high soil temperature was 48°F on 01/08, and its low was 42°F on 01/06.
    In 2016, the lowest soil temperature dropped to 44° in January, and the highest reached 69° in July. In 2015, those were 42° and 73° respectively. These yearly ranges are fairly typical at this location and were measured at a depth of 8 inches. We hope to add a sensor to a raised bed this year.

    Knowing the last frost date is a good rule of thumb, but an inexpensive soil thermometer will actually do a better job of helping you plan your garden.
